Applauded by O, The Oprah Magazine for her social media activism, Dr. Blay is the creator and producer of a number of online campaigns including #PrettyPeriod — a visual celebration of dark-skinned Black beauty — and #ProfessionalBlackGirl — a webseries and online community celebrating everyday, around-the-way Black Girl Magic.
